Dec. 1st - a Road - John 14:6

 “Jesus told him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.”

I took a picture of a road down in the country where my ancestors lived.  It is a quiet gravel road with the trees almost touching above having sprinkled their leaves across it’s dirt path. 

There are many types of roads that take us to different destinations.   Some are paved and crowded with cars speeding by; while others are quiet and peaceful but can become muddy when it rains. Roads are a lot like life.

Think about all the roads you will go down today; each one leads to a different destination.   Sometimes we may get wrong directions and go down a wrong road never reaching the destination we desire.  

In the Old Testament God spoke through the prophets and they pointed to the coming of the Messiah, a Savior.  He gave directions.  God knew we would still make wrong turns though; that’s why from the beginning of time Jesus planned to come to earth in human flesh to not only show us the way, but to be the Way.  

Here in John 14:6, Jesus says He is the way, the only way, to God the Father.  Today as you travel, cross, or see different roads, let them cause you to ponder on the Spiritual road you are traveling in life.  Are you trusting Jesus as your Savior, as your way back to God the Father Who is in Heaven?  If not, let today be the beginning of your journey with Him! Turn back to God and invite Jesus to be your Savior and Way. 

If you already are a follower of Christ, then today be joyful and overflowing with gratitude so that you can share with others this Good News of the Way that leads to true life!  Invite others to join you on this Jesus Journey!
